    Tastingnotes by Bruichladdich


    Lithe and subtle, smooth and sensuous, absolutely faultless with a lightness in the texture that gently ripples over the pallet exciting and uplifting the senses.


    Wild Honey/Golden Straw


    Lush golden grapes ooze from the glass like a model on a catwalk. Followed by honeyed malted barley, sweet and crisp, all wrapped up in the stunning mellowness of both American and Spanish oaks. One providing sweet vanilla and the other the semi sweet dryness imparted by the Fino. It has a delightful fresh and very clean fruit and floral bouquet which develops in the glass given time. Only the best butts have been used in the maturing of the Fino sherry thus the richness in the aromatics. Due to its time in our coastal warehouses that key note of lemon juice provides contrast and an edge of citrus sharpness to the fusion of aromas being experienced.


    The sweet malty flavours are immediately apparent giving thoughts of late August barley fields, warm and sunny. Then the dry sweetness of the Fino emerges slowly with a touch of almond nuttiness with the lushness of the grapes coating the palate like fruit syrup. It’s an arousing pleasure giving experience, and at this age it’s really at its highest point in taste terms. The skills of the farmer, the distiller, the Coopers, the bourbon and wine makers all coming together wrapped up in time and providing a single malt of star quality and congeniality.


    Bruichladdich with its beautiful unpeated fruitiness, its natural colour and its unchilled rich texture is a perfect match for the Fino style sherry butt enhancement, and lingers long bringing absolute satisfaction to the consumer who recognises the benefits of hand crafted natural single malt.


    Absolutely hedonistic!

    Most likely, the dubious Bourbon excerpt was encouraged by a good Fino, but at the beginning a good result was just melted before our eyes, sadly ...

    Serge V says:

    1992/2009 'Sherry Edition 2 - Fino'
    (46%, OB, Fino sherry cask finish,
    6000 bottles)
    Matured for 15 years in American oak,
    then for 2 years in fino. Colour:
    pale gold. Nose: starts on pleasant
    notes of walnuts and a mild vinosity,
    then a little leather, candy sugar,
    orange cake and herbal tea (rather
    hawthorn). Mildly grassy. Lovage,
    hints of soy sauce and balsamic vinegar.
    Some marzipan. Mouth: creamy and oily,
    half sweet, half grassy. Cane sugar,
    tobacco, walnut cake and gingerbread
    (or even speculoos). Notes of crystallised
    oranges. Finish: long, more on pepper
    and oranges. Comments: works well.
    I’ve always been a fan of fino
    maturing and fino finishing seems
    to work quite well too. SGP:352
    - 86 points.

    • Nose
      Vine is rich. Chocolate sherry with a ton of acidic tones , at the same time it makes the cherry, sweetish, I can feel some flowers, even a hint of brandy. (87)
    • Taste
      Glenfarclas 15y, like sherry, reminds of taste, but adds acidity to the top. Dozvuk is a lot of dry, slowing down slowly and slowly. (85)
